The first time I played Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance I still knew fear. I was just a man with a sword and assumed, foolishly, that I needed to carefully avoid the attacks of the enormous Metal Gear Ray that the first 10 minutes of the game threw at me. Once upon a time I’d spent an entire game waiting for the appearance of a Metal Gear, worried about the threat of the ultimate weapon. But back then I didn’t have a samurai sword. Turns out that makes a pretty big difference.
